Fontina & Blackberry Basil Smash Grilled Cheese

Fontina + Blackberry Basil Smash Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

  • 1 loaf of multigrain bread, cut into 8 thick slices
  • 12 ounces of fresh blackberries
  • 12-15 fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 6-8 ounces of fontina cheese, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

In a large bowl, mash blackberries with a fork (be careful – they will splatter!) and stir in chopped basil. Heat an electric griddle or large skillet over medium-low heat.

Lay a piece of cheese on each slice of bread, then top with a few spoonfuls of smashed blackberries. Gently pick up 3 slices, brush some olive oil on the bottom, and place them on the griddle or skillet. Place the remaining slices on top, brushing them with olive oil too. I like to cook these over lower and slowly so the bread gets perfectly golden and the cheese melts, so let each side cook for about 4-5 minutes. Remove and dig in!
